My brother is in TX and I would eventually love to move out that way anyway.
So I was wondering what you guys might be able to tell me about Arkansas! What is the weather like? The culture? (I'm originally from NJ which has a fairly unique culture, though I live in a very country area of NJ) Are there cities and towns, or mostly a lot of farmland?
I have lived all over the World via..Uncle Sam... Army 25 years. I don't know another place I'd want to be.
You will be in a great area and will find things to do all over.. St Louis, Kansas City, Little Rock, and Tulsa are only a few hours away. That's just the large cities. You will also find so much to do all around you.
Yes the summers are hot and humid, but if you don't like the weather hang around a bit it will change.. literally. I remember an April many years ago I was wearing shorts when I went to a friend of mine. When I left a few hours later... I was walking home in the snow... brrrr
